A documentary on a Sikh man's efforts titled ‘Selfless Sikh' by BBC World News is a heartwarming, beautiful video that depicts how S. #Ravi #Singh
, a 47-year-old Sikh helps the Yazidi families who are struggling to survive this apocalypse. “I think what people need is hope. They have hope that somebody is coming”. He also works with an organisation called Gender Center that helps Yazidi women rebuild their lives.
Being a Sikh man, his appearance has often led to him being mistaken as a member of ISIS sometimes, but that doesn't deter him from doing his bit. Every month, he religiously visits them and provides them with basic supplies of daily needs.
He also spends a lot of time talking with the families. “Yes, there's danger. Is it worth for me because it's a calling from within.” The Sikh community has always been a stellar example when it comes to helping make the world a better place. Ravi's personal motto is “recognise the whole human race as one”. It's people like him who restore our faith in humanity at a time when the entire world is losing it by the minute. If only more people had empathy for their fellow beings and did their bit, we would be able to build a better future for ourselves.
